The Herd could be stampeding into L.A.

Colin Cowherd, at heart, was always a West Coast guy.

He grew up in Washington, got his start in radio and TV in Las Vegas and, after a cup of coffee in Tampa, Fla., returned to the Northwest, where he honed his craft in Portland.

His move to ESPN 12 years ago, to replace Tony Kornheiser, transformed Cowherd into one of the biggest media stars of this era.

With ESPN now in the midst of Disney-mandated cuts, all signs point to Cowherd moving to Fox Sports 1 in Los Angeles, according to various reports.

His contract doesn’t expire until the end of the year, but media columnist Richard Deitsch sees Cowherd in L.A. by October.

“They will pay him essentially what Tom Cruise gets for a film,” Deitsch said Tuesday during an interview with ESPN 1100’s Steve Cofield. He said the salary number he is hearing is “€œnorth of around $6 million.”

Deitsch said Cowherd’€™s decision came down to wanting “€œto do something new.”

Another factor, said Deitsch: “€œHe’s got a book coming out. I think he would want to be on with his new employer.”€



Cowherd addressed his status during his radio show today, confirming his departure.


Cowherd said he would be doing a show on Sirius radio. He did not mention Fox. It will all come out in a few days, he said.


“I like risk,” he said. “It’s where all the fun is.”


The iconic “No, ifs and or bronze butts of “€œCrazy Girls”€ are heading to their new home Monday.

You can witness the move if you’€™re an early bird.

They will be arriving at the Strip entrance of Planet Hollywood Resort about 6 a.m. They spent the past 18 years outside the Riviera, where they were became the most famous naked cheeks in Las Vegas.

With the help of two cranes, the 2,500-pound statues will be delicately placed at the bottom of an elevator that leads to the “Crazy Girls” new home, the Sin City Theatre.

The topless show, which had a soft opening May 21, will have the official reopening Oct. 3.


Penn & Teller, hailed by Variety as “€œthrillingly subversive comic magicians,” have a Broadway hit up their sleeves.

For the second week in a row, the longtime Las Vegas headliners have the highest-grossing non-musical on Broadway.

“€œPenn & Teller on Broadway”€ topped the $1 million mark both weeks, with last week’s $1.225 million up nearly $150,000 from opening week, which nearly reached $1.1 million (seven previews plus opening night).

They have a six-week engagement at the 1,600-seat Marquis Theater. They return to the Rio on Aug. 22. The opening-week celebrity turnout included Debbie Harry, Ice T and Coco, Dick Cavett, Lainie Kazan, Raven Symone, Gilbert Gottfried, Glenn Beck and Lawrence O’€™Donnell.

They posed together for photos. Perry tweeted the words “€œMorta Linda” and added two sad-faced emojis. Some of her 72 million followers were in a dither over what her tweet meant. Before the show, Perry tweeted a photo of herself standing in front of the promotional photo of Carey at the entrance of the theater, with the reverential words, “€œLambily 4lyfe.”€ Carey refers to her fans as lambs. Lambily is a term for the fan club family. Also at the show: Girl group sensation Fifth Harmony. … FBI Director James Comey, acknowledging the 20-year service of nurse Patti Bourque to the agency’s local office during a presentation Monday. She recently joined the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health.


Donald Trump had some unkind words for Arizona senator John McCain. Can you imagine being tortured 5-½ years in a Vietnamese prison camp, and then a man whose greatest wartime accomplishment was broking a peace treaty on “Celebrity Apprentice” between Gary Busey and Meat Loaf belittles you and calls you a loser?”€ — Jimmy Kimmel
